Afghan citizens are constantly trying to escape from Afghanistan. India is also playing an important role in the safe evacuation process of people. Around 23 Afghan Sikhs, including Afghan Senator Anarkali Honaryar, Afghan MP Narendra Singh Khalsa, were brought to India by the Indian government late on Saturday night as part of the evacuation process. The two released a video message thanking the Indian government and said that the move has saved their lives.

Crowded at the airport became a big challengeThe Government of India is the first to register those Indians who are in Afghanistan and want to return. After this they are helped to reach the airport. The real challenge lies outside the airport. The crowd is increasing and it is difficult to enter the airport… especially where flights take off. Due to the violent mob and sudden firing around the airport, it has become difficult to enter there. US forces are controlling the airport and assisting with the rescue work.
